After news broke of the 13 U.S. soldiers that were killed during a suicide bombing in the Kabul airport, some family members of the soldiers expressed their disappointment in President Joe Biden (D). Roice McCollum, one of Rylee McCollum’s sisters, along with her sister and father refused to meet with the President because they hold him fully accountable for what transpired. Kathy McCollum,
Rylee’s mother not only criticized the President, but she also called him a “dementia-ridden piece of crap.” Another parent, Shana Chappell, is now sharing her thoughts after having met with the President. Taking to social media to express to the President that her “sons blood was on your hands,” President Donald Trump (R) shared the statement from Chappell, adding that things would’ve been different under his guidance.
In Chappell’s statement, she shared the discomfort she felt in meeting with the President while also voicing her disapproval of the President.
“Remember i [sic] am the one who stood 5 inches from your face and was letting you know i [sic] would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story and i [sic] had to tell you ‘that this isn’t about you so don’t make it about you!!!’”
In her interaction with President Biden, Chappell shared that the President rolled his eyes, and she informed him that “the only reason i [sic] was talking to you was out of respect for my son and that was the only reason why.” Moreover, Chappell also felt disrespected, detailing that "as my son and the rest of our fallen Heros [sic] were being taken off the plane yesterday i [sic] i [sic] watched you disrespect us all 5 different times by checking your watch!!!"
Agreeing with Chappell is President Trump, who affirmed that if he “were President, your wonderful and beautiful son Kareem would be with you now.”
Noting that “civilians should have been brought out first, along with our $85 billion of equipment, with the Military coming out very safely after all.”
